As we have mentioned in the description, we leave O Porriño and head towards Mos. To do so, we must follow the N-550 road that connects with Arcade and Redondela, so we recommend to take extreme precautions. After passing a few rural villages, we will reach the centre of Mos, where we can stop to rest and recover our strength to face the climb up to Santiaguiño.
During the ascent, we will alternate dirt tracks with asphalted stretches and we will cross small villages such as Cabaleiros, A Pereira or O Inxertado, which will show us a piece of the most rural Galicia. Once in Santiaguiño, we can take a break to rest and visit the church, which is closely linked to the Jacobean tradition and celebrates its pilgrimage on the day of the Apostle St. James.
As a promise is a promise, from here you will feel the effort rewarded when you get your first glimpse of the views of the estuary that will accompany you until the end of the stage.
Shortly after leaving the church of Santiaguiño, we find a Roman milestone that shows us the remaining distance to Redondela. We will walk downhill, passing through small villages such as Casal do Monte or O Souto, until we finally enter the
municipality of Redondela
. We will continue descending until we reach the centre of Redondela, crossing paths and tracks with perfect signposting.
Once in Redondela, we can make a short stop
